Loved it. Richard Rubin is as likeable and knowledgeable as they come. I just wished I'd read this before I took my own tour of the Western Front.
Would you listen to Back Over There again? Why?
YES---AS SOON AS I FINISH. IT'S LIKE A GREAT FILM THAT THE MORE YOU SEE, THE BETTER YOU LOVE AND UNDERSTAND.
What did you like best about this story?
THE NARRATION IS DEEPLY RESPECTFUL OF THE AMERICAN SERVICE MAN. BECAUSE DE GUALLE HATED AMERICANS SO MUCH, I THOUGHT ALL THE FRENCH THOUGHT OF US AS BIG LOUD MOUTH SOLDIERS. THE FRENCH TRULY CARE ABOUT, AND LOVE--AND MEAN LOVE--WHAT THE DOUGHBOY, SAMMIES DID IN FRANCE, FOR FRANCE IN 1917 AND 1918.
What does Richard Rubin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
HIS UNIQUE VOICE. MANY TIMES I PREFER A PROFESSIONAL. THIS IS DIFFERENT. I FEEL LIKE I'M WALKING RIGHT BEHIND HIM ON THE BATTLEFIELD, FALLING IN FOXHOLES, STUMBLING OVER MESS KITS AND BARBED WIRE..
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
GUYS JUST LIKE US.
Any additional comments?
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, RICHARD RUBIN, DO A "BACK OVER THERE" FOR THE SECOND WORLD WAR!
